Description

Coat Colours

As with other mammals, dogs have two major types of pigment in their coat: dark pigment (Eumelanin) which is responsible for black and brown in the pigmented areas, and yellow pigment (Phaeomelanin) which is responsible for red, yellow, orange, golden, cream, apricot in the pigmented areas. The colour varieties seen in dogs are due to genes controlling the amount, extent, and distribution of these two colour pigments.

E-Locus

The E-Locus has a number variants, the 'e1' variant which is responsible for the yellow colours in most breeds, the rare 'e' variants which are repsonsible for the same but in certain breeds, and the special variants 'eA', 'eg' and 'eh' which are responsible for specific colours, some of them occurs only in specific breeds including domino, grizzle, sable and hare-pied. The EM variant is also located at the E-Locus and esponsible for the melanistic mask. This test is only for 'e1' variant.

The 'e1' variant

This test detects the 'e1' variant of the E-Locus, the 'e1' variant is responsible for the red, yellow, orange, golden, cream, apricot coat in the pigmented area in most breeds. The 'e1' variant is recessive which means that two copies of 'e1' (e1/e1) are needed for the dog to be red, yellow, orange, golden, cream, apricot in the pigmented areas. This test number 8018 which is offered in this test as an individual test, however, it is also included in our popular Laboklin Coat Colour Bundle (bundle number 8654)

Australian Cattle Dog

Please note there are additional rare E-Locus variants, which are not analysed in this test. The 'e2' variant is found in Australian Cattle Dog only and therefore for a complete analysis in Australian Cattle Dog, you need to order this test 'e1' in addition to the rare variant test . You can take advantage of our special offer additional coat colour test at half price'.

E-Locus Special colours: 'eA', 'eG' and 'eH'

Testing for these special colours is avaialable in a separate test, for more information check test number 8682 special E-Locus variants 'eA', 'eG' and 'eH'. You can take advantage of our special offer additional coat colour test at half price'.

EM-Locus Melanistic Mask

Testing for Melanistic Mask is available in a separate test, for more information check test number 8146 EM-Locus (Melanistic Mask). You can take advantage of our special offer additional coat colour test at half price'.

Order of dominance: EM> EG> E> EH> e.
